Winter has finally broken. That being said, with warmer weather on the way (finally) Canadians will no doubt want to cool down. Luckily, Burger King Canada is offering cheap ice cream and shakes to mellow out the heat. 

Right now, you can get a soft-serve cone for just $1, or a delicious mini-shake for $2 (available in chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla). It's the kind of deal built for summer.

On top of the low price, all of Burger King's frozen products are made with 100 percent Canadian dairy. 

The loonie price tag will only be available for a limited time though, so you might want to get out early and take advantage of it.

Burger King locations are currently offering takeout and drive-thru service. They also offer delivery through a number of services including Skip The Dishes and Uber Eats.

While McDonald's usually introduces a $1 cone deal around this time, the chain has actually taken cones off of their menu during the pandemic to simplify operations.

While an ice cream deal is exciting and definitely something that will draw people outside, it's important to remember that the world is still in the midst of a pandemic.

That means enjoying your frozen treats at least two metres away from anyone else. At least if it melts onto your hand, it will also encourage you to wash them.

No one is entirely sure what this summer is going to look like. Even Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that it's not going to be the usual season we're all used to.

However, that doesn't mean that people can't enjoy the warm weather in responsible ways. 

Getting a cone or shake for a loonie or a toonie seems like just the thing to take your mind off of the current situation, even if it's only for a few minutes.
